Stage Star Shocks Goldblum

TOBY JONES shocked co-star JEFF GOLDBLUM when he split his eye open during a performance of their hit production THE PLAY WHAT I WROTE - and gushed blood over the stage.

The star of KENNETH BRANAGH's Broadway, New York production is required to hit himself on the head with a baguette, which is simulated by a piece of wood covered in foam, during the play - but he whacked himself too hard and seriously cut his eye.

The bleeding was so bad, a doctor - Dr JERRY PEDEN, a general surgeon from Philadelphia - was found to treat the stricken star during the curtain call.
